Last Minute Optional Model Lunch Meeting – Thursday, 18th of September, 12:30 - 13:15 – Ravelijn, RA 1501
Did you hear about the benefits of the Optional Model for UT employees? As a PhD candidate, you can still apply online for a tax-free allowance via the optional model in 2014. Hurry up – the deadline for filling in the model is September 30th!!!
If you are interested in obtaining the benefits that the Optional Model brings, but you are still not sure how to use it for your advantage, we have organized a Late Optional Model Lunch Meeting for you. Let us tell you about your options, so you can make the best out of your unused holidays and pay less tax. You can buy a bicycle or some extra holiday hours, obtain a refund on your commuting costs or trade unused holidays for some extra money.
During the lunch meeting, Ireen Miessen, HR personnel on the Optional Model, will go through the web application, explaining each step and its significance.
After the presentation Ireen can answer individual questions about filling in your form. You can bring your laptop and fill in your model on the spot and ask any question you have specifically about your form.
Hope to see you there!
